My Signals and Systems set from June is online - high quality, low quality. Tracks from cloudDEAD, Biosphere, Esem, Pita, Curtis Chip, more (tracklist). The minidisc recorder mysteriously turned itself off at some point, so there's a gap.

His master's voiceI recorded a 45-minute ambient freakout session prepping for Signals and Systems. Biosphere, Figurera, Boards of Canada, etc. Here's the mp3, and the tracklist.

"People call it experimental music, but I don't. I know what I'm doing." --Harry Partch

I've been listening to my sets from the Advocate and the Cellar over and over. It's torture, but it's instructive. I lost the plot at some point during my Cellar set: the track sequencing just became random, and my beatmatching skills disappeared. The Advocate set, the set that I kind of tossed off, turned out much better. Dance sets (like the Advocate, unlike the Cellar), though, it's always easy to put together an emotional arc. With idm, what, I move from melancholy to playful and back?
Actually. Hmmm....
Anyway, I'll be posting both sets in the next week or so.

2. Sascha Funke - Drei Auf Drei
